no problem tom.. i agree with ya on the subject so say what ever you like, lol.

i know the guy from HMT. him and some others made fun of my previous build. there isnt any thing you can say to them to convince them other wise... even when i made it 353whp and he still hasnt...

as far as the welder goes i cant find a gun that will fit it. there are some online that might fit but i dont want to spend 130 on a gun and it not fit. i may see if i can borrow my dads this week end so i can continue.. cause i pretty stuck with out it.

Actually you CAN keep the turbo spooled up between shifts like the rally car do.... but turbos only last one race when done that way.

All launch control is doing is retarding the timing so more of the exhaust is burning in the turbo manifold..... nothing special about it and it not very good on your exducer.

Yeah, now you're talking about an antilag setup, where you retard the timing 30deg & ignite the mixture while the exhaust valves are open. It will definitely build boost but you need alot more money in parts to do it safely, you need a huge idle air valve, modified throttle body, and a turbo and manifold that can actually handle combustion happening inside of them.

done as much work as i could today on the cold side of the turbo kit. intercooler is mounted, tb side charge pipe is set up, i cant do much with the turbo side until i know exactly where the turbo will sit. i made a brace to strengthen the bumper since i can to cut it for the IC, need my welder to finish that.
